Would you like to add new and positive challenges to your retirement experience?  

A “fellow blogger” recently sent a list of thought-provoking questions that could add new insights to your retirement experience. You’ll likely find some intriguing, others challenging and a few provocative. As a catalyst for discussion, some could even  lead to a deeper understanding of a partner’s, friend’s or sibling’s concerns

I  hope you’ll enjoy these questions and use at least some to further enrich your retirement experience.
